Children In Need

Well done to everyone for dressing up today and donating your £1 for such a worthwhile cause. You all looked fantastic!

Thank you very much to everyone who baked for the bake sale and who came along to buy something. I think we have all had plenty of treats today!

Finally a big well done to the House Captains for organising and running our Children In Need morning. Our total at the moment is a brilliant £800!! The final total will be revealed next week!

Potato germ experiment

This week we have been busy looking at keeping ourselves healthy. We looked at eating healthily  as well as the importance of hygiene.

We set up our potato experiment to look at how germs could be present on different surfaces.  It was decided as a class which objects we should test.

We were all very excited to see the results of the experiment.  It shocked and surprised us how germs spread onto objects that we would touch everyday!  We will definitely be washing our hands more often!!!

Rania’s Greek Visit

On Friday 13th October P6, P6/7 and P7 had a lovely visit from Rania, Athena’s (in P2) mum.  She came in to teach us about Greece which links to our countries and continents topics.  She helped us understand that not all Greek people nowadays believe in Greek Gods.  She also told us some magestic stories!  Here are some of the most interesting things we learned from Rania:

  • Greek people drink lots and lots of coffee
  • In the olden days, the women couldn’t go to the markets or go to the Olympic games
  • The story of Daedalus and Icarus
  • The story of Theseus and the Minotaur
  • Half the Greek population live in the capital city, Athens
  • 1,600 islands to choose from – they are spoilt for choice!
  • Greek people don’t just have birthdays – they also have name days
  • Olive oil is used for lots of different things
  • Rania grew up in Athens and she spoke in Greek for us!

Thank you so much to Rania for coming in today to talk to us all!
